Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:

About this study
The correlation between lymphedema and shoulder arthroplasty will be analyzed using medical records for all patients that came to the Mayo Clinic with a diagnosis of lymphedema within the time period of 1979-2016.
We will use multiple variables to analyze the associations between lymphedema and multiple other factors, including infection, recurrence of disease, implant failure, etc.
